|Description: This training will cover comprehensive assessment and treatment protocols as they apply to serving adults with autism and other intellectual disabilities (ID). The information will go beyond basic functional assessment tools and methodology to cover environmental assessment measures as well as the ability of the person with ID to fully pursue their values and goals that they have set for themselves. Examples will be provided from peer reviewed literature that the author has published as well as his current books Assessment of Adult Core Competencies: Teaching Skills to Adults with Autism and Severe Behavioral Challenges; and Behavioral Relaxation Training Clinical Applications with Diverse Populations. Fully detailed clinical approaches will be reviewed along with their impact on those that we serve. The ability of these intervention strategies to ameliorate severe aggressive behavior will also be covered. A complete assessment and intervention tool for working with adults with ASD and other intellectual disabilities and severe aggressive behavior will also be covered.
|Learning Objectives: Participants will select how to better quantify aggressive behavior in terms of its impact on the environment and those that serve them. Participants will be trained on specific aspects of operationally defined self-esteem behaviors and will select the best options for those that they serve. Participants will identify the nature of and the need for more in depth functional assessment as it relates to severe aggressive behavior.
